Jim Waters (Johnny Mack Brown) arrives at Ed Parks' (Jack Rockwell) ranch to find Parks' cattle herd mysteriously increased.
Hamp Harvey (Frank LaRue) has been losing cattle and he suspects Parks.
But the culprit is Harvey's foreman Brent (Dick Curtis) who gets his orders from the town's leading citizen Sig Bostell (Tom London).
Bostell wants Harvey's ranch and after trying to frame Harvey by killing Parks, Waters takes over and goes after both the killer and the rustlers.

Johnny Mack Brown in Good Form in "Bar-Z Bad Men"
Lois January again plays the romantic female lead in a very good "B" western. The plot is standard, but progresses nicely to a satisfactory conclusion. Johnny Mack Brown continues to do well in these westerns. The high rating is based on the year it was released and in comparison with lesser westerns of the middle and late 1930's.
